Vaughn Velocity V9 XP Youth Goalie Glove
Brand new for 2020, Vaughn Custom Sports is proud to unleash their newest version of their Velocity Line, the Vaughn Velocity V9 XP Youth Goalie Glove.
The V9 XP is a complete departure from the traditional glove feel Vaughn has been known for. The V9 XP is based off of the VE8 XP and that of the Pro V Elite 2019 models.
The basis of the XP glove is still clearly a Vaughn style build, but it now has a 1-piece cuff has become preferred across most goalies. This 1-piece cuff helps provide rigidity over the wrist to create a large blocking surface for when the goalie hits a blocking butterfly.
Next, you will notice a vastly different closure than all other gloves Vaughn has offered. The glove closes in a very natural 60 degree angle. This new degree angle is designed to help catch the attention of goalies who have not traditionally worn Vaughn gloves. Continuing with the visual presentation of the glove, you will notice a very clean palm section with very little stitching. The reduced amount of stitching provides fewer seams for pucks to hit and potentially sting the hand.
Moving through to the backhand of the glove, Vaughn has opted to go with a traditionally segmented setup which gives a great fit across the knuckles while still offering plenty of protection. Internally there is a Velcro closure across the back of the fingers, another Velcro strap across the back of the knuckles and a large nylon wrist strap which feeds through a padded wrist strap. This strap pulls through the backhand and can be adjusted without removing the glove or opening up any pieces of the backhand. The inside is lined with a comfortable material to provide a tight, non-slip grip for the younger goaltender throughout usage.
On the V9 XP Youth, there is a Single T which helps goalies cradle pucks and provide support to the pocket.
If you are an entry-level Velocity enthusiast that wants a North American inspired build design, but met with a completely distinct feel and break angle, look no further than the Vaughn Velocity V9 XP Youth Goalie Glove.
